Crazy5:

Hi,

they are using the HPI steering hubs,bearings and stub axles. they work fine with no clearance problems. one problem is that the HPI hubs seem to break real easy. some guys are running the XRay T2 steering hubs,bearings, & stub axles also.

Hebiki:

Hi,

I'll try to get you a good rubber tire/carpet setup. I'll e mail the guys at the track we go to to race. they have alot of fast guys running rubber tires there.
glad to see your back!!!!!

Thanks

3mm Inner Camber Linkage (Roll Center)
2* Camber (Static)/Hudy Set up
1.5mm uptravel droop (Center Lift method) (Static)
4.5mm Ride height
Zero Toe out or 1* Toe out
Front Diff looser than rear, not much

Rear end
Damper 2nd hole from outside
Middle hole on suspension arm
40wt AE
White Xray
1a front block
1d rear block or 1e
2mm on inner camber link (I am going to try 1mm)

Rubber go with stock set up. You may want to add a oneway for faster steering.


Good Luck

Ehhh, I think that'll depend on the conditions & surface you race them on. I've only tried B3's once, but it was in what I'd consider to be pretty extreme conditions(high-90'sF temps, VERY abrasive black pavement with the sun beating down, this was at Memphis' '05 TCS race) & the one set of B3's I used seemed to hold up very well all day(felt alot to me like TakeOff CS-27's), couldn't tell if they dropped off much if at all(but I'm not saying they didn't, just couldn't tell)....

Hebiki:

Hi,

it's for the LWS. he has a TA05 with the stock suspension that he runs with a setup that's close to the one I sent you only with silver springs all the way around. and red sway-bars.
I'm in the process of putting the same setup on my 2nd TA05 for a race tomorrow. it'll be the first time I've ever run rubber tires on carpet in like 6 years........ it should be fun!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks

I know many of the Eruo drivers when they run rubber on carpet actually run the standard suspension arms, just an FYI.
